The Chicago Headline Club has announced its annual Peter Lisagor Award nominations for Chicago-area news media. Windy City Times is nominated for two awards, both for in-depth reporting for a non-daily publication.
The WCT AIDS @ 30 series is nominated for the work of staff and freelance writers in that series, which began April 2011 and runs through April 2012. Most of the articles will be collected into a book available later this year. More than two dozen writers have contributed to the series.
The AIDS @ 30 series was also a finalist for the national Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation ( GLAAD ) media awards in the newspaper article category, and lost to the Boston Globe. The New York Times was also a finalist in that category.
The second Peter Lisagor nomination is for the Windy City Times series, "Lakeview crime: The numbers," an investigation of crime statistics in the Lakeview neighborhood. The series was written by Erica Demarest, Kate Sosin and Andrew Davis.
The annual Lisagor Awards will be announced during an event Friday, May 4, 5:30 p.m. at the Union League Club, 65 W. Jackson in Chicago.
